(Verse 1)
There in the garden, all alone
In anguish, falling to the ground
You sought a friend beloved to watch and pray
Yet such a friend could not be found
Too busy thinking of myself
I let the world lull me to sleep
And as I slumbered in the early hours
You were alone to pray and weep

(Chorus)
Because of me
You bled and died
I held the hammer
When you were crucified
I was the one
Who brought You so much pain
And yet You bore the cross
To rescue me from sin
You did it all because of me
Because of me

(Verse 2)
They asked me if I was Your friend
I swore I did not know Your name
In fear that they would come and seek me out
I cursed and lied to hide my shame
Then when I heard the rooster crow
Just as You told me it would do
You glanced my way as You were passing by
And in that moment Lord I knew

(Repeat Chorus)
Because of me
You bled and died
I held the hammer
When you were crucified
I was the one
Who brought You so much pain
And yet You bore the cross
To rescue me from sin
You did it all because of me
Because of me

(Bridge)
And as You hung on the cross
I dared not look at Your face
You thought of all but yourself
As You died to save mankind

(Half Chorus)
Because of me
You bled and died
I held the hammer
When you were crucified

(Transpose and Repeat Chorus)
Because of me
You bled and died
I held the hammer
When you were crucified
I was the one
Who brought You so much pain
And yet You bore the cross
To rescue me from sin
You did it all because of me
Because of me
